Ascent Trip Report

My family and I have done this mountain over a dozen times. It is one of the nicest climbs I've ever done. Many feel that since it is only 1530 that it is not worth the climb. They are wrong, since the sea level can be were one chooses to start the climb, the whole mountain can be verticle climb. This time we took up the gorgue trail and took the northeastern trail back down. Both beautiful trails, and we saw a eastern green snake!
